Little chefs

It seems the only way I can actually accomplish something like cooking supper is to include the girls in the prep work. Granted, it takes more time and is much messier, but I find I'm less stressed than I would be if I were trying to cook and the girls were doing all in their power to gain my undivided attention. A few nights ago we had Garden Veggie Lasagne on the menu and it contained a lot of the girls' favorite veggies: squash, zucchini, mushrooms, peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes and carrots. I substituted soft tofu for the ricotta and the girls stirred in fresh basil and oregano from our container garden.
 Some sliced provolone cheese...notice the large bite taken from Lucy's piece.
 A sprinkling of mozzarella and parmesan....
Yum! Dinner is served. The best part was when Kate and Lucy told Len that they had made dinner "all by themselves" for him.
